December 2009 | Open Source, Web Graphics & Video

Blender 3D 2.49 Incredible Machines, is a new book from Packt that helps game designers and developers create realistic images, 3D models, and videos of machines. Written by Allan Brito, the book presents the readers with all the features that are needed to create super-realistic 3D models of machines for use in artwork, movies, and computer games.

Blender is a 3D animation program released as Open Source software, which can be used for modeling, UV unwrapping, texturing, rigging, water simulations, skinning, and animating. The program can also be used for rendering, particle and other simulations, non-linear editing, compositing, and creating interactive 3D applications. Blender runs on all the important operating systems (including Windows, Mac, and Linux).

Readers will learn to model, create mechanical models and vehicles with detailed designs. Trained through step-by-step instructions, readers will learn skills to enable them to build weapons, vehicles and robots, building their own sensible and incredible machines with a vast amount of exceptional techniques taught in the book.

Developers will learn to build fantasy weapons and spacecrafts, using various resources such as metal, glass, amongst other materials, while working with large and complex objects. This will include a giant transforming robot, involving the modeling of two objects and creating a new space environment along with the object. The book presents practical tutorials and training material for those interested at excelling in mechanical modeling and product visualization.

With a vast amount of projects presented in a fun and entertaining manner, this book is ideal for all Game Designers, Developers, Artists and Product Designers. The book is out now and is available from Packt. For more information, please visit www.PacktPub.com/blender-3d-2-49-incredible-machines/book
